Browning A bolt target .308 with Sightron S-III 6-24x55

Got to sight it in today. It is scary accurate. I'm very pleased. I only had access to 100yds today. It has a set triger option or standard. When using the set triger you chamber a round and press the triger forward until it clicks. Then it takes 14 ounces to fire the rifle. I am used to a little under 2 lbs. so 14 ounces is a huge change. But it's not adjustable. So I will learn to love it. I will be shooting at 500 yds in the next day or two. I will let you guys know the pros and cons at that range. Hopefully all pros. Just wanted to share. Thank guys

    If ANYOONNEE made stocks for an X-bolt... I would want one just like that! but NO ONE LIKES THE X-BOLT and I AM PAYING FOR IT!

    Sorry, I had to get that out of my system. I love my browning but I want to do a rebarrel job but my stock is for the *pencil* barrel that is on it and I wont be able to free float a heavy barrel with that stock... I love everything else about it... just wish i could find a damn stock!

    Well I set up a little gun range at the house. I'm gonna set up a target tomorrow on the pipeline next to my property. So I can shoot at long range. This is at 125yds. Not far but was still fun. And getting used to the 14oz triger. Will share more info and pics. Later fellas.

    Excuse me if I missed it, but could you tell us who made this stock for you. Great looking rifle BTW. I love the brownings as well.
